Lizzie and The Handmaiden are films about women whose love (or simply lust) for one another creates a powerful catalyst that dismantles patriarchal structures. In this episode of Chick Flicks, we think only one of these films has a queer love story that works. Lizzie was directed by Craig MacNeil and stars Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. The Handmaiden is based on the novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters and was directed by Park Chan-Wook. It stars ‎Kim Min-hee and ‎Kim Tae-ri. This week Bridget is into Big Little Lies, The Terror, and The Souvenir. McKenzie recommends Good Omens, Flash Forward, and What Remains of Edith Finch.

In our 13th episode, we talk about two found footage horror films: Paranormal Activity & The Taking of Deborah Logan.

Bridget and McKenzie visit the 1980’s with the classic kid’s adventure film The Goonies and the Netflix show Stranger Things. They find that The Goonies is a relic with some pretty problematic jokes and that Stranger Things is disappointingly not all that strange.  The Goonies was directed by Richard Donner and produced by Steven Spielberg. Stranger Things was created by the Duffer Brothers (hey–where are all the sister teams in Hollywood?). This week Bridget is into the podcast Why Won’t You Date Me? With Nicole Byers and the original It miniseries based off the book by Stephen King. McKenzie recommends the YA book A Conjuring of Light, the song “Sticky” by Ravyn Lenae, and shopping local at Strange Ways.
